It seems strange to me that John McCain and the Republicans are attempting to campaign on the high price of energy by arguing that we should safeguard obscene profits for the energy companies and give them pristine coastline and wilderness to make even more obscene profits. Isn’t the normal reaction to getting raped by the utility companies and gas stations to want to rape back? I hope Obama learns to say, “They’re ripping you off.” Because that’s a much better appeal to emotion than some Young Republican undergrad appeal to the ironclad laws of supply and demand. No?
